Chateau overview - owner's description

This magnificent chateau in the Loire Valley is known as “Petit Chambord”, for its resemblance to the royal palace in Loir-et-Cher. Built in 1854, it's now the site of truly grand weddings, where guests stay in luxurious suites or beautiful rooms and can have daily meals prepared if you wish. Your on-site concierge, Cynthia, will welcome you warmly - ask her about arranging horseback rides or spa services (or both!)
Whether you hold your nuptials in the private chapel or in the gardens, this chateau's French Renaissance architectural details will make your wedding photos unforgettable. The splendour continues inside, where masterfully carved wood panelling and hand-painted ceilings bring you back in time. Opulence pervades not only every room, but also the grounds, where the private lake is a romantic spot for a walk.
This holiday chateau is located only 30 minutes from the town of Angers, where you should tour the famous Cointreau factory. A ride on the TGV will bring guests to or from Paris in 1.5 hours. The Loire Valley is famous for wine and chateaux- since you have one already, set off in search of the vineyards. The wineries surrounding Saumur produce excellent sparkling wine...a toast is in order!

Features

At the Chateau Des Joyaux the accommodation has been refurbished to the highest standards, offering guests both the grand design of the nineteenth century and the luxury of today's technology. Every convenience is available during your stay at the chateau.

Each of the eight suites in the main chateau includes robes, slippers, a hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities. Experience historic luxury as you sip champagne, read poetry, and soak in a giant claw foot bath tub, surrounded by fresh flowers.
There are ten further ensuite bedrooms in the newly renovated Coach House which has rooms decorated with individual style from vibrant and contemporary to more classical and elegant, as well as a dance hall and bar perfect for events.

Finally, there is a separate two-level apartment called the Gate House which has two bedrooms for up to five guests

The beautifully laid park with woods and fields has a very large and attractive lake for delightful walks.

Please note the chateau is not self-catered and the kitchen is not available to guests. The private chef can prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for guests, payable locally - please contact us for prices. There is also cold storage available for snacks and drinks should you need it and plastic plates if you wish to use the BBQ.
